Lori Loughlin, one of the many rich parents caught up in the college admissions scandal, is reportedly confident that her case could be dropped -- and she won't do any time in prison.
"Lori's lawyers feel they have a very strong chance of having the charges dismissed because prosecutors withheld key evidence that [ringleader] Rick Singer was pressured by the FBI to lie in the course of his conversations with Lori," an unnamed insider Us Weekly.
Loughlin and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to an admissions consultant to help her daughters get into USC. Unlike fellow actress Felicity Huffman who pleaded guilty, Loughlin is fighting the charges.
Huffman is free and clear after doing less than a fortnight in prison for her participation in the college scam.
If found guilty, Loughlin faces up to 45 years in prison.
